Why wellbeing matters at work

Increasingly, businesses and other organisations are starting to understand the importance of taking care of the health and wellbeing of their employees. In a healthy workplace, employees are likely to feel valued, while having access to the tools required to care for their mental and physical health.

Fostering employee wellbeing is not only good for people, but it can also help the company become more effective. By promoting wellbeing, the incidence of stress can be reduced, creating a positive working environment where individuals and organisations are able to thrive.

Furthermore, positive health and wellbeing can enable employee engagement, which helps to improve organisational performance.

An effective workplace wellbeing programme can deliver mutual benefits to people and organisations. By investing in employee wellbeing, you can foster stronger resilience, employee engagement, and interpersonal relationships, all while reducing sickness absence.

At AHR Consultants, we work with businesses and other organisations to improve the overall health and wellbeing of their employees, providing a range of support services and training courses.

Good health and wellbeing are integral to the performance of any individual, and it’s no surprise that this remains true within an organisational setting.

With the presence of an Employee Assistance Programme and a fully qualified Mental Health First Aider, employers can be confident in their ability to provide ongoing support throughout their organisation, on both a physical and mental level.

Explore our market-leading services below to see how you can embrace health and wellbeing in your workplace.

Employee Assistance Programme

When you adopt our market-leading Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) we can direct your employees toward a free 24/7 support service through our partnership with CiC Wellbeing.

This established and trusted service gives your employees access to a 24-hour advice line, structured counselling, and a personal wellbeing app. By implementing an EAP you are focusing on prevention rather than cure, which helps to save you time and money by reducing stress and absence.For further details on our Employee Assistance Programme, click here.

Mental Health First Aid Training

Our two-day Mental Health First Aider course is designed to equip delegates with a broader understanding of mental health issues. By completing the course they will be able to notice the key indicators of somebody experiencing a mental health problem.

Upon completion of training, delegates will receive a certificate to confirm their qualification as a Mental Health First Aider. They will also have access to a mental health first aid manual which contains useful information for best practices in the workplace.

By equipping your workforce with key mental health skills you will foster an open and positive workplace where mental health is taken into consideration and people are supported. This, in turn, can lead to less sickness absence, better staff retention and a more productive workplace.
